Representative Text

1. With a strong and glad endeavor
Let us rally round the cross,
One in heart and zeal forever
Seek to save the world from loss.
In no scant and stinted measure
Be our wealth and service giv’n;
Let no love of ease or pleasure
Hedge to one the way to Heav’n.

2. In the joy of love’s communion,
Finding motive and reward;
Strong in purpose, strong in union,
As an army of the Lord,
Let us on to fight our battles
In the heav’nly Master’s name,
Though the thunder rolls and rattles,
Though the sheeted lightnings flame.
